Could hardly believe this ... Raiders had 16 draft picks b/w 2012 and '13, and only one (Sio Moore) is currently a starter. My god.

Re: Jon Gruden/Raiders buzz, 2 things I've heard ... 1) Franchise QB a pre-req if he coaches again. 2) He really likes Derek Carr.

Grew up watching the 70s Raiders. Know about teams that won those trophies. Trophies had no business at 0-4 firing press conference.

#Raiders head coach job has some warts. Obviously. But it is infinitely more attractive now with QB Derek Carr than it was without a QB

Raiders have lost 10 in a row, well on the way to their 10th season of at least 11 losses since 2003. That's an incredible level of failure.

Bottom line: #Raiders didn’t get joy in firing Allen. Just felt team needed change and there was no other avenue to take. That's fair.

Hard to pin a lot of it on Dennis Allen. On the flip side, Hue Jackson's work as OC in 2010 and HC in '11 now looks legendary.
